I come from 4 generations of diaspora scots who have mainly lived and worked in asia or london until my daughter was born in the usa in 1997. I understand that there is a lot i will never begin to understand about the american education system but i have been exploring online opportunities all my working life as an MA in stsatistics corpus christ college Cambridge 1973. In 1999 i edited a triple issue of the journal of marketing management on 20th c failiures in marketing which i also presented to harvard faculty - theur response you may be right but what you are researching would not get funds in usa.
When my ftaher was spending a lot of the 19860s researching te rise of Japan he brought me back one of te first pocket caluclatirs- ever since gordeon moore published his promise that his allumni would multuply 100 fild more chip tech every decade from 1965 - one question has been what will be the use of the human stastitician once computers have trillion times more power to analyse- once a one diallr chip has more analytiuc capability than separte human brains.

It is from this situation that we aim to catalogue with optimism the emergnce in 2020 of a diferent colege netwrk - which will be pivotal to thise milennials who want to spend teor working lives noit just making money but saving our species from extinction.
